Our Engineers have worked hundreds of hours to fix, add on and make new features available in the coming 2.75 version.
These two gentlemen are my heroes; Tom for coming up with the idea of CrossLoop in the first place and because they both keep making it better.

Optimized Connection Performance
The First Feature we have revealed of the NEW 2.75 version is the Optimized Connection Performance. From the day you install 2.75 you will always be connected with a relay connection as well as our best Peer-2-Peer connection. This is ideal especially for slow connections. This new quality assurance takes a few seconds and ensures that your connection is optimal. Based on factors such as the behaviour of the routers on both ends and how they handle Network Address Translation (NAT) CrossLoop will determine and set you up with the what is the best connection for you. When you qualify for the Peer-2-Peer connection the relay connection will be stopped after the superior is confirmed to work.
Stay tuned as we will continue to reveal more features, changes and add-ons prior to the launch.
Did you know...?
"That NAT makes it possible for machine with local IP addresses in a LAN to talk to servers out on the public Internet, even though they themselves don't have a public, routable IP address? There are various flavours of NAT and it's the combination of NAT behaviour on both ends (access and share) that determines whether two clients will manage to establish a direct connection with each other (P2P) or will have to communicate via an intermediary server (relay)". Joe Wein, CrossLoop Engineer
P.S. A shorter post of the Sneak peeks into the new version will be posted first on our Facebook page.
